Remove Binky The Doormat and and So Fast, So Numb from the poll and you have a damn fine set of songs. These two are almost equally bland, but I find Binky slightly more listenable.

I thought there would be some asshole trying to vote off Undertow by now.

Surprising, really.

So sad... Other than that embarrassing bird-of-prey-like scrawk that Stipe lets slip before the guitar break (somebody else has to notice this), I think Binky is a pretty likeable song. It's got conviction and strong Mike Mills bkg vocals, a blueprint of numerous REM classics. Unfortunately, it is named Binky, such a severe blow to overcome. It's like naming your daughter Vulva and expecting her to have a great childhood and a lengthy list of suitors in adulthood.

Ok, Binky is not even close to being an REM classic. But I'd take three Binky's in exchange for Leave.

I think it's a shame How The West Was Won has survived further than Low Desert.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Bono's shriek in All Because of You is pretty similar in its weakness.

And Bono's seems quite a bit louder in the mix, unfortunately. There's no airbrushing that blemish.

I do really like Binky, but just not as much as the remaining songs. Including How the West Was Won - I love its mood.
